The Scottish Borders region

The Scottish Borders sits in the south-east corner of Scotland, a stones throw from the Border into England.

There is a wealth of attractions and beautiful scenery within the Scottish Borders and superb road and rail links to both Edinburgh and Newcastle (both within an hours drive)

Being coastal and countryside, the area appeals to visitors of all ages and interests and is a largely undiscovered part of Scotland.


The area benefits from both a coastal and countryside location, offering a wealth of outdoor pursuits and activities for visitors of all ages and abilities.

Marine wildlife is accessible through boat trips, coastal walks and discovery centres with the vast country based wildlife, literally on the doorstep at Press Mains.

Walking, cycling, fishing and swimming are all popular pastimes for guests in the area and if you bring your camera, you shall never be short of opportunities for fantastic sea or landscape shots.

A friendly and welcoming area, we shall be happy to recommend good, local restaurants for evenings out and shops to buy everything you shall need for your stay.

"Excellent quiet and peaceful location with tremendous bird life"

Lovely peaceful property set on a farm just outside Coldingham. The Castle cottage had 3 great bedrooms. Very comfy beds. Fully equipped kitchen. Good living room. Took our 3 dogs and provided crates. Also provided cot & highchair for our grandchild. Tremendous birdlife with feeders set all around the row of cottages. Really enjoyed our time there - we will certainly be back again.

"Will definitely return!!!....tomorrow if I could."

Me, my partner, our friend and his partner all went to this cottage for one night. It was kind of a last minute surprise for my other half. We are all young adult and enjoyed this a lot!!!

Everything you could possibly need is all on sight. And the jacuzzi bath is lovely.

Very clean and comfortable and the log fire is great!!

Emma (owner) introduced herself on the morning of our stay and was very pleasant offering her help if we needed it!

CCTV of wildlife was intriguing and great to watch. Surrounding areas are beautiful and we can't wait to return in the summer for a longer stay!!

Thank you for review.
We are very pleased you enjoyed your stay.
We look forward to welcoming you back.

"Springwatch in your front room"

We had a great time at Castle cottage,, VERY clean on arrival. would definately recommend and hope to return in the future, saw loads of wildlife around the cottage and the idea of the cameras is excellent, think we watched them more than the tv!! my tractor addict 10 year old loved watching the harvest being done and looking after the sheep in the field next door to us. Had lots of great days out without having to travel far. Nothing too much trouble for our hosts if enquiring about anything......THANKS FOR A FAB WEEK

"Heaven is Press Mains...."

We've stayed at all but one of the cottages at Press Mains. They are all of an equally high standard and consequently we've been going each May for over a decade!
Eco-warriors will be impressed with the approach Emma & Peter take to their farming and the holiday cottages - the wildlife is clearly benefitting and one has one's own version of Spring Watch piped into the TV screens in the property.
There's plenty to do in the borders, loads of great houses, loads more fantastic sandy beaches.
If I were a selfish person I'd write an awful review, so as to protect our chances of re-booking - Oxfordshire (where we live) is beautiful but we need at least one annual trip to Press Mains. Yorkshire folk may claim that where they live is "God's own County", which may be true, but "he" built Press Mains to retire to!

"A must for all wildlife enthusiasts"

Just got back from another wonderful stay at Press Mains Cottages. We stayed in Castle Cottage, which was very well-equipped with everything you would need. Lovely, cosy fire. Wonderful views from the cottage over the farmland. Too many bird species to begin to list! We saw our first Red Poll, as well as woodpeckers, pheasants, green and gold finches, deer, hare, badger - all across from our cottage window, and also many of them beamed straight to our television 24 hours a day, which was absolutely fantastic. Can't take your eyes off the buzzard and otter cams!

It needs to be acknowledged what a wonderful job Emma, Peter and all do in managing not only the farm but the cottages, and their commitment to the wildlife environment that they work amongst is second to none.

I would recommend Press Mains to anyone, we can't wait to return!!

"It was a perfect holiday"

Castle Cottage is a lovely place to stay. It is a well equipped cottage and we felt right at home. The surrounding area is beaufitful and the wildlife was great. Emma is doing a great job running the place, she was lovely and very helpful aswell. Will be returning soon. We would recommend The New Inn restaurant for food in coldingham it was delicious and in Eyemouth the best place for fish and chips was Mackays as it was really good.

"Relaxing family getaway with fantastic outdoor activites and wildlife."

5 in our family -myself and my husband and 3 kids aged 14, 9 and 6. Fab cottage, nice rooms, everything we needed, clean and comfortable. We all especially enjoyed the log fire and the wildlife and CCTV watching badgers every night. What a great place to come for a relaxing family getaway. We enjoyed exploring the local area and walks - Coldingham beach, St Abbs and the grounds of nearby Paxton House. Can imagine this would also be a great base for further afield in the Scottish Borders, Northumberland and even Edinburgh. Emma was always available and made us feel welcomed and at home. She even took the time to show us round the farm and to let the kids feed the animals. We were able to relax together and step out of our busy lives to a calm and relaxing place to stay. Thank you very much. We will be back!
